Goal

Provide four laptop computers for daily use in my ACCESS ELA class in order to increase levels differentiation, collaborative and cooperative learning, and multi-sensory content within my classroom, as opposed to searching for and securing computer lab time.  

 

What will be done with my students

Many of the ACCESS ESE students do not have access to or can not remember their log in information for the district provided Office 360 accounts. By creating and maintaining a small dedicated space for computers, I could avoid the disruption of having to log all the students in and out of the computers using my log in information and/or saving their work to a flash drive. Dedicated computers in my classroom would allow for more instruction and continued continuity of their work.

Provide three laptop computers for daily use in my ACCESS ELA class in order to increase levels differentiation, collaborative and cooperative learning, and multi-sensory content within my classroom, as opposed to searching for and securing computer lab time.

Dedicated computers in my classroom would allow for more instruction and continued continuity of their work.
Consistent access to computers in a familiar environment will increase student access to assistive technologies, like speech to text, allowing students who have difficulty typing to complete more challenging writing assignments, as we can focus on the content of the work, as opposed to the “work of the work”. Additional computers will allow me to provide more differentiated reading and literature instruction, as I can provide both audio, paper, and electronic copies of the text for students and meet them where they are.
My goal for the year is to create a digital portfolio for student work and provide access to and differentiate content and instruction for the ESE students.

ACCEESS Points are the Florida state expectations for students with significant cognitive disabilities to access the general education curriculum. ACCESS points reflect the core and essence of the traditional standard but reduce the complexity of standard to the essential component. Dedicated technology will help me address the ACCESS points focused on spelling (LAFS910.L1.AP2c, LAFS1112.L1.AP2b), Reading and Text Complexity (LAFS910/1112 RI.4.AP.10a,b,c), Production and Distribution of Writing (LAFS910/11 W.2.AP.4a, 6a, W.2) Research (LAFS910 W. 3.AP.7a), and Writing (LAFS910/1112 W.4.AP10a,b).

 

 

Benefits to my students

Increased and consitent access to technology and more differentiated instruction to create a more dynamic, interactive and rigorous learning environment. Limited disruption to routine and locations will also increase both direct and indirect instruction time.
